Was cooking ever so easy?

My husband left today on a business trip so dinner tonight was all me. I found myself "cooking" my most frequently eaten meal as a single adult. It's basically a salad wrap made with whatever I have on hand.

I know the picture isn't magnificent, but it was an afterthought. I'd already eaten one wrap.

This was the version I made tonight:

Salad Wrap
a plate full of chopped lettuce, romaine is my lettuce of choice
black beans mixed with rotel (left over from another dish)
1 cheese stick, chopped into pieces
1/2 avocado, diced
dressing of choice (I used Italian tonight)
burrito sized tortilla or two

Mix all together and either stuff a tortilla or rip pieces of tortilla and eat a bit at a time. Easy. Healthy. Yummy.

SO, my mom and dad and sister were over for dinner last night. I made your MILLIONAIRE chicken. I have made this about 3 times before and my guests were gushing. I do a couple things differently than the recipe like an extra clove of garlic, a couple extra onions, extra ginger, slivered almonds and I leave the chicken in large chunks so it doesn't absorb too much sauce, which I like to drizzle over the rice and steamed veggies. Anyway thanks for the recipe. I love it!

Thanks for the hummus recipe - I've been wanting one without tahini paste! A random thing as well - do you use saffron? I've got some from Morroco (my trip this summer) I'd sell at a deal if you're interested.
Keep up the good cooking! I use that cookbook you made me ALL the time!

I've only used saffron once or twice in my life, so I'm not the ideal customer...

Randa, I'm glad you like the millionaire chicken. I"ll have to post it on this site sometime...
